Google browser - calculator

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

You come online, and you don’t use the Google search browser. It is not digestible! One can’t bypass the intelligent browser. It is the gateway to the pilgrimage of online journey. One has to start their online journey through this browser. So, it is necessary to know the pilgrimage – the Google browser. More you understand about the Google browser, more enriching will be your online experience.

We all know the Google browser is used to search our intelligent and, of course unintelligent queries. Let’s not begin with our unintelligent search query; how Google interpret our enquiry, it will be dealt later exclusively.

However, let’s begin this time with the Calculator property in the Google browser. Yes, the Google browser functions as a scientific calculator. Those accustomed of using the browser will conclude – it is better than a calculator.

Imagine, you are working in a Microsoft word file, and you have to do simple arithmetic (addition and subtraction) e.g. 22+2-5+17-56. You don’t have the time to open the in-built calculator of your computer or of your mobile.

Relax, just copy and paste the arithmetic in the Google browser. Answer: -20.

To effectively use this feature, you must know the operators and its functions. Have a look at it.

  • Here "+" is the operator of the function "addition". Ex 3+44
  • Same "-" is the operator of the function "subtraction". Ex 13-5
  • * for multiplication. Ex 7*8
  • / for division. Ex 12/3
  • ^ for exponentiation (raise to a power of). Ex 8^2
  • th root of calculates the nth root of a number. Ex 5th root of 32
  • sin, cos, etc. trigonometric functions (numbers are assumed to be radians) sin(pi/3), tan(45 degrees)
  • ln for logarithm base e ln(17)
  • log for logarithm base 10 log(1,000)
  • sqrt for square root. Ex. sqrt(9)

So, how is it? The Google browser is more than a searching tool, it is a scientific calculator, isn’t it?

Readers with scientific writing has an advantage here, they don’t have to learn all these functions. Rest, remember, rote, do whatever, to enhance and recall this online skill.

Interesting! Wait for the next article, again on Google browser. Do subscribe.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to

He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife.
